The Evolv Shift X has a very small footprint, however due to its innovative layout it is capable of hosting a range of high-end gaming hardware components. The Shift X can also be placed horizontally, cutting an attractive figure in any living room with its intelligent blend of aluminium and tempered-glass surfaces. In spite of being designated as a Mini-ITX case, the Enthoo Evolv Shift X is capable of holding a large dual-radiator as well as graphics up to 50 cm in length.

: Space for a 280 mm radiator
: Graphics cards up to 52,9 cm in length

The Enthoo Evolv Shift X offers space for gaming graphics cards up to 52,9 cm in length and a 280 mm radiator for a high-performance AiO CPU cooler. The case has been designed from the ground up to be the perfect silent, watercooled system for use in the living room. With its blend of tempered glass and aluminium, the case blends in perfectly amidst any designer living area and can be set vertically in a manner similar top Hi-Fi speakers or set horizontally like a games console.

The graphics card is mounted with the accompanying PCIe x16 riser card in such a way as to allow either the backplate or the GPU cooler to be visible from the exterior. The Mini-ITX motherboard is built in parallel to the graphics card with the back panel facing upwards. The ports on the I/O panel as well as the graphics card are hidden beneath a covering which allows all connected cables to be redirected through a gap in the back.

Up to two 3,5" hard drives can be installed in the front in place of a radiator and both accompanying SSD brackets can similarly be attached in the front. The 2,5" SSD brackets are somewhat better installed at the back, allowing the case to hold a further radiator. The base plate on which the SSD brackets are installed (no tools necessary) can be removed to further simplify hardware installation.

The I/O panel of the Mini-ITX case is located to the left side on the rear of the case and offers two USB 3.0 ports for gaming peripherals or external USB hard drives as well as USB sticks. In typical Phanteks fashion there are several points with Velcro ties to allow improved cable management as well as rubberised cable guides in the case. Dust filters as well as air vents in the aluminium casing are equipped with dust filters to offer the system further protection.
